Street Smart High
Street Smart High 2016
Street Smart High is an annual road safety education event hosted by RAA in conjunction with Event Partner the Motor Accident Commission. Street Smart High aims to reduce the state's shocking youth road toll. Road crashes are one of the leading causes of death for young people under the age of 25, and Street Smart High aims to demonstrate the devastating reality of road trauma to South Australian high school students.
Street Smart High provides an opportunity for students, soon-to-be learner, learner, and novice drivers to learn about driving risks and avoid situations that place themselves and others in danger.
At Street Smart High students will:
- witness a simulated crash scene, including pre and post-crash outcomes
- hear from young people whose lives have been affected by road trauma
- interact with leading community, state government and industry organisations who provide programs that aim to keep young people safe.
Street Smart High is open to students from years 10 through 12 across South Australia, and attendance is free.
